Home Manager jobs: frequently asked questions

Welcome to our home manager jobs page, featuring all the latest positions throughout the UK, as well as frequently asked questions below.

What does a home manager do?

Home managers – who are sometimes referred to as residential home managers or care managers – manage the day-to-day running of care homes.

As a home manager, you’ll have to recruit and train your staff, organise budgets and ensure the quality of care meets nationally recognised standards and best practice.

The homes you manage could support adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health conditions or older people.

What are the day-to-day responsibilities of a home manager?

The nature of your duties will vary according to the type of home you manage.

However, very broadly, you can expect to have the following responsibilities:

• Providing high quality, personalised care according to industry standards

• Recruiting and managing staff at various levels of seniority

• Managing the budgets and finances of the home

• Working to health and safety standards

• Linking up with organisations within your community – especially hospitals and medical facilities

• Overseeing medication and treatment plans and checking resident health where necessary

• Co-ordinating group activities

• Working closely and communicating with residents’ families In terms of working hours, being a home manager is normally a 24/7 job – which means you may work some weekends, nights and unsocial hours.

How do you become a home manager?

To become a home manager, you’ll need to become registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

This will require a mix of skills, qualifications and experience.

The primary route in is obtaining a level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care.

It’s a qualification developed specifically to train aspiring home managers.

However, this isn’t your only option.

If you’re an NMC registered nurse with some leadership experience, some roles might be applicable.

Also, with a Level 4 NVQ in Health and Social Care, as well as clear evidence of leadership skills, you’ll also stand a good chance of being employable.

Equally, an undergraduate or master’s degree in social care would definitely make you a relevant candidate.

Your skills will be carefully assessed too.

You’ll need to be caring, patient, resilient and compassionate, like any care worker.

But vitally, you’ll also need to be a natural and provable leader.

Home managers can manage a large number of staff and have to make important decisions every day.

How much do home managers earn?

Home managers primarily work in the private sector, so unlike in the NHS, pay is unregulated and difficult to benchmark.

Industry statistics suggest that the average salary is somewhere between £30,000 and £35,000.

However, experienced and highly qualified home managers routinely earn well in excess of £50,000.

The future for home manager salaries looks interesting too.

With an ageing population, demand for care homes, and therefore home managers, is rising.

But care sector pay has remained stagnant for years and is currently under the government’s microscope.

Home managers could see their pay packets rise significantly in the future if this renewed focus continues.
